Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week. A nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is ‘headache’ and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase. But please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week. There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in. If you comment or tweet then please use the hashtag #WotW
Word of the Week is open from 6am on Friday Morning to 12 noon on Monday. Plenty of time to join in!
If you are unfamiliar with the Word of the Week linky then please feel free to ask any questions. New linkers are always welcome, we love to hear what you have been up to in the past week.
MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Headache
A few weeks ago I had a headache so bad I ended up in A&E after a visit to my GP. After tests they told me that it was ‘probably’ to do with my chronic condition and I would just have to live with it.
I did start to feel better for a while, but the headache soon came back, along with the neck pain. Apparently, it can be part of my condition and a lot of people have Botox injections in their neck to help them. I would prefer not to go down that route, but at the moment I’d be happy to try anything to ease the pain.
Life at the moment is a bit of a headache too. My washing machine has broken and even though I have repair insurance, they can’t get anyone out to fix it until next Thursday. How am I going to cope with a family of seven with no washing machine for a week. Seriously, when they’ve fixed it I’m going to cancel my contract for all my appliances. The amount of money I pay them I could save and buy new appliances when they break down. Not very environmentally friendly I know but when you can something delivered in a day, but not fixed for over a week, it’s frustrating to say the least.
It’s now half term but I’ve been given a headache from the school trying to get in touch with them to sort out The Little Man’s extra support. He’s started having problems at school, including being bullied, but getting to speak to someone has been impossible. Promises to call me back have been broken, and we go into half term with nothing sorted, which is not what I wanted.
I’m hoping to take some time to relax and focus on feeling a little better. I don’t think my headache is going anywhere but there is nothing I can do right now. I’ll speak to my consultant in April and see what he says.
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
